A buzzing sports bar that transforms into a party palace as night falls, Walkabout sure knows a thing or two about all-day drinking sessions. The city centre watering hole is home to a gorgeous outdoor terrace, perfect for getting in a round with your best pals.

Gassy's, Cardiff

An affordable boozer located just a short walk from the University, Gassy's is one of the best pubs with outdoor seating in Cardiff. Grab a seat at the streetside tables and spend the day chowing down on hearty nosh while knocking back real ale, all at prices that won't break the bank.

Church Inn Llanishen

A traditional, local pub, Church Inn Llanishen is the place to go for alfresco drinking and dining. Settle into one of the outside picnic benches and get stuck into scrumptious ales, beers and wines accompanied by an eclectic selection of British grub.

The Woodville, Cardiff

If you're looking for the best pub beer gardens in Cardiff, The Woodville is one of our top picks. The quirky boozer is adorned with brightly coloured walls, neon lights and pool tables. Swing by on a summer's day to sip local ales on the vibrant terrace.

Without a doubt, The Eli Jenkins is home to one of the best beer gardens in Cardiff Bay. Not only is it pretty darn huge, with lots of sun-soaked seating, but it also has outdoor screens so you can watch the sports fixtures. Pair that all with delicious food and drink and you've got yourself a winner.

The Cricketers

Home to one of the sunniest spots around, this friendly Cathedral Road boozer is the only place you'll want to find yourself come summer. Nab a table on the terrace and prepare to sink pints plus feast on tasty pub grub until dusk falls. 

The Vulcan Lounge

The Vulcan Lounge on Wyvern Road offers everything you could possibly want from a traditional British pub. A great selection of beer and a friendly clientele makes for a fun ambience, while the quaint beer garden, framed by vine-covered walls, acts as a sanctuary from the bustling city.

While Clwb Ifor Bach may be better known for its incredible live music offering, the city centre venue also happens to have a gorgeous outdoor terrace. Swing by on the weekend to sip craft ales and reasonably priced wine under the twinkling fairy lights.

The Lansdowne

A community pub with a whole lotta heart, The Landsdowne offers regulars and stop-ins alike the chance to sample excellent craft beers and soak up some sunshine in the sprawling yard. Even better, it comes complete with picnic benches and regular outdoor events.
